An exercise that was offered last Monday - distorted cylindrical objects. Just what I needed! As you know, I've been struggling with this old jug I've been trying to draw. The advice I was given was to use the vertical lines of the cylinder inside and outside the object and to carve the object from it, just like a sculpture. Easier said than done, as evidenced by these three exhibits. And I'm pulled between all these different techniques: continual contour drawing directly with a pen (no erasing!) versus soft lines everywhere that show the process as much as the end result. Some day, out of all of this, my own style will emerge. But I'm a slow learner.
